Nigeria Purchase Six Turkish Attack Helicopters

Six more attack helicopters have been purchased by the Nigerian government to help the country’s efforts to combat instability, and four more of the 43 passengers on the Kaduna-bound train that terrorists kidnapped on March 28, 2022, have been freed, leaving 39 victims still held captive.

Temel Kotil, the chief executive officer of Turkish aircraft maker TUSAS, confirmed the sale of six T-129 attack helicopters to Nigeria on Monday.

The federal government struck a deal with the business, which was followed by the statement.

Kotil, who announced the news on his Twitter account, did, however, allude to it on CNN Turk.

This event might not be unrelated to the recent visit of Turkish President Tayipp Edorgan to Nigeria.

As the struggle against insurgency escalates, the federal government recently purchased A-29 Super Tucano fighter jets from the US while simultaneously making comparable purchases from Russia and other European nations.
